Scope and content

Flynn's investigations of occupational & environmental health issues brought him in close contact with American researchers, among them environmental consultants and, in particular, litigators. An extensive exchange of information and documentation ensued. This turned up unusually rich seams of corporate information on asbestos, made available under rules of discovery and specifically through depositions of key witnesses.
